Set in the heart of Sheung Wan area, across from the Sun Yet Sen Memorial Park & swimming pool both looking out over the world famous Victoria Harbor.New eateries & galleries are rejuvenating the traditional neighbourhood showcasing the new&old of HK
This cozy apartment comfortably accommodates a single traveler, a couple or a small family visiting Hong Kong. It has a full bathroom that has an enclosed shower with water heater. One comfortable real bed (Not a futon or pullout sofa) that sleeps up to a couple and a single pullout sofa bed. A TV with DVD player and a solid wireless internet connection. But the best thing about this apartment is it's location. It is close to all sorts of transportation that take you to everywhere you would want to go to in Hong Kong. Located on the West side of Hong Kong in the Sheung Wan district, it is 5 minutes walking distance from the Sheung Wan MTR Station and 5 minutes from the foreign friendly district Soho (South of Hollywood Rd). It is only a few stops away from the Central MTR station on the Tram or bus and the neighborhood is super safe and friendly. Also, there is a 7 Eleven convenient store as well as a Laundry Place right around the corner.
**In the past I have borrowed out adapters for FREE to guests as a courtesy and convenience, however, too many have not been returned (over 50) and I can no longer keep up with restocking. Unfortunately, I can't provide these for free but if necessary, will sell them AT COST (@HKD20) instead. Sorry that this gesture failed.
Guests have access to:
- FREE WiFi
- Cable TV
- Hair Dryer
- Iron/Ironing Board
- Microwave, Hot Water Boiler, Cooker
- Towels, Sheets, Toilet Paper, Shampoo, Soap, etc.
As much as possible or invisible if you want. I will try to meet with arriving guests and show them the area. Whenever guests need information or recommendations, I am always available via messaging or phone.
The Sheung Wan neighbourhood is ever changing and a fantastic mix of "old' and "new" Hong Kong. This apartment is located in the heart of Hong Kong's commercial, cultural and shopping districts and within short walking distance to the subway and HK Macau Ferry Pier. A few minutes walk away from the harbour front and the fantastic Sun Yat Sun Memorial Park and Public swimming pool over look the world famous Victoria Harbor.
The Sheung Wan MTR station is but 8 min walking distance away that takes you all over Hong Kong and Kowloon. There are also buses, trams, minibuses that run near the doorstep of the building on Des Voeux Road West Road and take you to every corner of the island and beyond.
Once you arrive in Hong Kong, everything is quite simple and all starts with a call from the FREE phones at the airport located in the hall immediately after you pass through baggage customs. There is also a Visitors Center there if you would like to pick up some maps, local travel guides, etc. to read on your way to the apartment. If you need a local SIM card, there is a 7-11 in the middle section of the main arrival hall where they see all types of SIM cards, I usually prefer the PCCW brand as it is the larges local operator.

Loved staying here! Super clean apartment in a very convenient neighbourhood. Brendan was pleasant to communicate with and made sure our trip went very well. This apartment will definitely go on my frequent stay list for HK.
Decent place for 2 to stay. Nice and cosy. Fully equipped with amenities. Like the chinese saying, 麻雀虽小 五脏齐全. I felt like a local walking in and out of the apartment! For anyone who wants to feel the real Hong Kong, Brandon's place is the way to go!
Third time staying at Brendan's listing. our flight was delayed and arrived very late. He kept in contact and arranged someone to meet with me. Smooth check in and communication. The listing is simple and has all the essentials. Location is convenient and safe. Thanks Brendan!
Only a short walk from Central, my girlfriend and I loved this apartment's location and we're happy we chose it over places in Kowloon. Brendan and his mom were super helpful and provided us with tips of what to do and eat nearby.
Everything was clean and the bed nice and warm (it's wedged between two walls, though, so if you're too tall you might find it hard to stretch—I'm 6'1 and although I did get a great sleep, it would've been nice to have a little more room).
There's also a construction site next door, which we didn't mind at all since we were out and about exploring the city all day, but if you're planning on staying in the apartment all day (but why would you? there's so much to see and do!) it might get a little noisy.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay and would absolutely recommend it. If we ever found ourselves back in HK we'd definitely try to stay here again.
Despite all the availability of Brendan, I must say that the Apartment is not an apartment...is more a tiny room with shower and tv.
Its like they bought an apartment and then built several rooms with bathroom inside the apartment. Its like a small hostel or inn.
Central location and Brendan´s availability
Not an apartment, just a Small, small room
Just 2 English channels
Must get a taxi from subway stations
Despite the room is clean, the building itself is not, so ants, spiders and 2 cockroachs appear on the bedroom.
Great stay for the week in Hong Kong. Convenient location in Sheung Wan area, lots of things to do in this area. As a first time user of Airbnb, a bit apprehensive, but Brendan was extremely responsive. Hong kong is a phenomenal city, be sure to stay here!
Месторасположение квартиры очень удачное- 2-3 мин до трамвайной/автобусной остановки, откуда можно быстро добраться до Макао Ферри, до Централа, основных туристических достопримечательностей. Квартира находится на первом этаже 22-двухэтажного дома. На крыше есть небольшая смотровая площадка с шикарным видом на пролив Виктория и полуостров (она нам заменяла вечернюю прогулку на Пик). Рядом есть магазин 7-eleven, приемлемых кафе/точек питания ближе чем за 3-4 трамвайные остановки до дома нами не обнаружено. Рядом находится рынок сушеной рыбы, запах вокруг соответствующий. Если соседняя квартира будет заселена, то отчетливо можно слышать каждое слово- квартиры разделены заколоченными фанерными дверями, ранее эти помещения, видно, были единым целым. Квартира подходит для непритязательного ночлега, очень уж скромные у нее габариты- на мой взгляд 2 комнатки составляют не более 10-11 кв.м. Двуспальная кровать на самом деле является по русским стандартам полуторкой и спать на ней вдвоем неудобно. При раскладывании дивана во второй комнате свободного места для прохода остается 30-40 см. С горячей водой, несмотря на нагревательную колонку, проблем нет. Горячая вода есть только в душе, в умывальнике- вода не нагревается, она почти комнатной температуры. Останавливались в ноябре - мучали комары. В квартире есть электрочайник, микроволновка, небольшой холодильник, кондиционер и набор тарелок- ложек. Смена полотенец/белья за 9 дней пребывания производилась лишь однажды (на 8-й день), после напоминания. Окна открываются, но выходят боком на шумную проезжую часть, + постоянный запах жаренной рыбы, к тому же в соседнем доме было строительство, поэтому облегчения не приносят. Из безусловных плюсов- бесплатный вай-фай и транспортное удобство местоположения. При прочих равных условиях - по мне лучше выбор делать в пользу гостиниц.
brendan and everyone in their team always answered any questions, emails, calls at lightning speed even at 4am! everything you need is in the flat to just sleep and go. Bed was excellent. Would recommend to travelers on a budget. Just wish there was english tv channels :)
5 stars for the price and location. I love Brendan's place in Hong Kong. Only 15 min walk to the Central of Hong Kong, IFC, Airport Express and other HK Island attractions. Brendan's apartment is comfortable, super clean, and so close to Central. Brendan only charges Motel 6 price if you understand the real estate market of HK. Thank you Brendan, I will be back.
